Praised for their multi-faceted sound, HOLLANDS has been described as "provocative poetry sung over instrumentals laid out with such compositional intent." by Relix Magazine and "a is cherry mix of folk punk and free noise... breezy melodies and whimsical cuteness.." by Christopher Weingarten of the Village Voice. HOLLANDS has released two EPs and their recent LP debut was profiled by BBC as "pulsing indie pop that really puts a spring in your step ... mixing fun, folk, rock and elements of classical."
HOLLANDS was recognized internationally as one of six top bands by the Banff Centre in Canada and completed a two-week artist residency at the Banff Centre working with Canada's DJ Champion. Past highlights include the NXNE Music Festival in Toronto, shows in support of Dean and Gene Ween, Christina Courtin, and Dean and Britta, as well as live radio performances Breakthru Radio Live @ Pianos NYC, Jezz Harkin's "Get in the Van," Pratt University's "The Rodent Hour," WICB Ithaca College Radio, and "Open Tunings" on WXXI in Rochester.
